Funky SWU w/ natural deception; all arms and legs unwinding at the hitter w/ moving parts that hide the ball. Off-line arm-circle into slingy 3/4 slot.

Fastball Velocity 40 40 89 87-91 FB has backed up, now sits in high-80s after flashing 92-94 in the past. Slight frame probably means this is where he’ll be moving forward.

Overall Summary
Velo has backed up, now pitching w/ full finesse approach where he leans on secondary to set up FB. Stuff is likely a tick short for rotation role, though feel for CH and control/command give long relief or situational upside.
